WESTERN HORIZONS: UNIVERSAL WESTERNS OF THE 1950'S DVD
Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment proudly present Western Horizons: Universal Westerns of the 1950s—an unprecedented collection of five big-budget, Technicolor Westerns featuring many of the finest actors and directors the genre has ever known.
Robert Ryan and Rock Hudson are Texas brothers on opposite sides of the law in Bud Boetticher’s Horizon’s West (1952). Alan Ladd and Jay Silverheels find the courage to revolt against Ladd’s commander to save Shelley Winters and other border settlers in Raoul Walsh’s Saskatchewan (1954). Rory Calhoun is a gambler and gunslinger who attempts to reform himself and saloon girl Piper Laurie in George Sherman’s Dawn at Socorro (1954). Richard Widmark sets out to get revenge on the men who killed his father while fellow traveler Donna Reed complicates his journey in John Sturges’ Backlash (1956). Native Americans vow to battle the white men who have violated their treaty as Jeff Chandler, Dorothy Malone and other settlers try to maintain order in the high-stakes drama Pillars of the Sky (1956), directed by George Marshall. With strong supporting performances by such screen legends as Raymond Burr, Dennis Weaver, Lee Van Cleef, William Campbell, Harry Morgan, Ward Bond and Lee Marvin, this collection unites many of the finest talents ever to work in Westerns.
Presented for the first time on DVD, these five films have been re-mastered to their original Technicolor glory.
